Mark Kennedy believes the City supporters have a big part to play in this weekend’s clash at Ipswich Town.

With more than 27,000 fans expected inside Portman Road on Saturday, Kennedy has stressed the importance of a vocal away end.

He said: “I understand it will be a difficult game against a team like that who have a great stadium and a full house.

“The fans have been hugely important everywhere we have been. I think we are set to double the amount of away fans we took to Ipswich last season, which admittedly was midweek.

“The supporters are a huge part of who we are and what we are. That connection between ourselves and the fans does not go unnoticed.”

Kennedy has also expressed the focus has been on his team in the build up to the clash in Suffolk, and will be looking to build on the goalless draw against Charlton Athletic last time out.

He added: “Ipswich are a very good side. It is always about what we do and how we go about things, whilst being mindful and respectful of the opposition. Whether it is Ipswich or another team, we fully prepare for everybody and we have done the same this week.

“Ipswich are definitely the favourites and we are the underdogs on Saturday, but I do not play on that. We are going to Portman Road with the main purpose of getting as many points as possible.”
